Hi, I’m Jacob.
I’m a Detroit-based entrepreneur, connector, and community organizer.
Who am I?
Ecosystem builder - I’m focused on building healthy, inclusive tech ecosystem in SE Michigan as the Community Director for Collider Detroit (by Altimetrik), running a community hub for software engineers in downtown Detroit.
Community organizer - I regularly host dinner parties, workshops, and other events aimed at building cross-cultural relationships (see: Coalition Series) and awareness/empathy for social justice issues (see: Productive Discomfort).
Podcast producer - I produce and co-host a podcast called The Returning Citizen, elevating the voices of formerly incarcerated men and women
